Funny How That Happens

Funny How That Happens

After nine months, the “sale pending” signs that have been so prominently displayed in the windows of two units in the 21 unit development at 525 Gough have suddenly morphed into “for sale” signs. Not too soon considering, as far as we can tell, they were never actually “pending”.... Read More »

Sign(s) Of The Times

Sign(s) Of The Times

Tipped by a loyal reader of SocketSite, we dispatched our staff photographer to 308 Presidio post-haste. No fewer than seven “For Sale” signs (there’s another behind the car) that all seem to be screaming “please buy me before the market turns” in unison. Not too surprising that the units...

Yerba Buena Loft Liquidation?

Yerba Buena Loft Liquidation?

Barbagelata’s two page ad in the most recent Real Estate Times features eighteen properties, of which 28% are Yerba Buena Lofts. Only three units, however, are listed on the MLS (all of which have the same listing agent). Perhaps this is an investor sensing the top of the market... Read More »

199 New Montgomery: Update

It’s been six days since we last reported on 199 New Montgomery unit #1501 and once again the price has been “Reduced!!”. Somehow that original 1.2% reduction failed to generate a ton of interest, so this time it’s down another 2.2% (asking $879k). Death by a thousand paper cuts…... Read More »
